UPDATE: A fugitive wanted for having a .357-caliber pistol loaded with hollow-point bullets, along with various quantities of drugs, in his Maywood apartment surrendered to police at his attorney’s Essex County office today, then was booked on 15 charges before being taken to the Bergen County Jail.

Adam “Atom Bomb” Wraga, a 37-year-old Passaic native, was being held on $210,000 bail.

( For the charges , SEE BELOW .)

After finding a man carrying a pound of pot outside Wraga’s apartment two weeks ago, police obtained a search warrant for the home.

Besides the gun and the illegal ammo, they said, they found crystal meth, LSD, psilocybin mushrooms, Ecstasy, cocaine, and “other yet to be identified drugs,” along with more than $7,000 in cash.

A judge signed arrest warrants for weapons and drug charges, along with a  money-laundering offense, and the search for Wraga then began.

Hiding wasn’t easy.

Wraga sports a variety of tattoos all over his body, including the letters “ATOM BOMB” on his fingers, along with the suits from playing cards, two huge starts on the back of his hands and tattooed eye liner, among various other markings up and down his arms chest, mid-section and back.

Two years ago, Wraga bought a hearse he named “Lil.” He said he was particularly proud of a skull-sculpted metal tailpipe.

The charges against Wraga:
